spreads the good cheer throughout gameshowland...
Wheel of Fortune 7.8 - up a tick to a season high
Jeopardy 7.0 - up two ticks to a soulmate-matching season high
Family Feud 5.1 - flat but hardly terrible
Millionaire 2.6 - up a couple ticks to, yeah, a season high
Let's Ask America 2.0 - up a tick to a season (and of course series) high in its Scripps markets
Baggage 1.1 - down a tick, Jerry can't catch a break
TV by the Numbers brings the impressive viewership averages for the top three: Wheel of Fortune 12.3 million (weekend repeat 6.2 million), Jeopardy 10.8 million, Family Feud 7.8 million. Can Jeopardy get past the eleven million mark? Put your answer in the form of a question. Maybe?
Although there's been no formal announcement, I assume the dirt-cheap Let's Ask America will get a second season. The numbers aren't ginormous but the show costs $7.95 per ep. Scripps has to be pretty happy.
GSN's numbers softened in the latest week, January 28-February 3, with 298K/253K viewership averages prime time/total day. The Dancing With the Stars marathon probably didn't help.
